My motivation is changing kids’ lives through my foundation, The Steve & Marjorie Harvey Foundation. I talk more about motivation than I do about comedy. I am in the “calling” part of my life. I tell people all the time, create a vision board. Habakkuk 2:2 “Write the vision, and make it plain.”
God places everything he has for you in your imagination. “It’s the preview to life’s coming attractions” – A. Einstein
What’s in your imagination? What are you adding to your vision board this week?
Write the vision and make it plain. It’s just that simple.
My father was my biggest supporter. Fathers, sometimes our children just need that one moment of our support to guide them in the right direction or launch their dreams. Here’s a story of how my father did that for me.
Success is hard. Not being successful is hard too. Let me tell you the difference between the two.
Difficulties are a part of your journey to success but there is joy in the journey to success. Don’t block your blessings, celebrate your wins along the way.
If you are waking up in the morning and can’t stand waking up because you don’t want to go to your job. It’s because you are not living in your God-given gift.
Your gifts will make room for you. Here’s how it happened for me.
“I WAS GOING THROUGH A ROUGH PERIOD IN MY LIFE.
“You’re going to be sheer greatness because you’ve learned how to wake up.” I’ll never forget when John Walker told me that almost 40 years ago.
I was going through a rough period in my life. I had just been laid off and was on unemployment. At the time I signed up for Amway and my sponsor would call me at 5:30AM every morning. I had a bad attitude when he called, I was laid off and couldn’t see my future and it was 5:30AM! One day he called and said “I’m disappointed in you, when are you going to change your attitude? You wake up with a bad attitude, which pretty much explains why you’re having a lot of bad days. I hate that about you, you have so much potential.”
Now that cut me deep, I don’t like anybody – thinking I’m something but I’m acting like I’m not. So the next morning I flip the script. Watch what happens next. Here’s the reason how I became the AM morning radio personality. God turned me into the morning man. ‘The Steve Harvey Morning Show.’”
How God has blessed my life… I can’t even explain to you. God knows I’m not perfect, but he’s working on me.
Behind every moment of adversity, there’s a lesson and a blessing. You just got to hang in there to see what it is.
